I recently started using a new editor called joe, with this editor there is
a feature that if your existing session is terminated, it creates a DEADJOE
in the directory.  While editing my shadow file my connection was
terminated, thus leaving the DEADJOE in my /etc directory that was world
readable containing my entire shadow file.  I think the problem is self
explanitory.  I have emailed the creator and there is no feature to disable
this that I can find or mentioned in the email.  My umask setting does not
seem to affect the permissions of DEADJOE.

The operating system is Debian Linux 2.1 kernel 2.2.10 i386.
